Hi so I'm kinda working on this whole "new me" thing. And that consists of me recovering from self harm and just re inventing myself in a way. I'm working on losing weight and was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to do so. thank you

sometimes you gotta fall before you fly.

Incorporate more water and veggies into your diet. Instead of a carb side, choose carrot sticks or spinach salad. Focus on not starving yourself or depriving food but eating plenty of fruits and veggies. Slowly add it to meals you love. Like if you get a cheeseburger, just get one and have a salad along with it. Instead of drinking pop, start drinking more and more water. If you're hungry, eat something healthy. I do not recommend counting calories and instead just slowly substituting healthier food.

Start adding walking to your exercise if you are overweight. Put off running until you're in a healthy weight range. This will help decrease any stress on your knees. Biking is also a great alternative too or cycling.

There are exercises you can do that do not involve the gym. Begin working on doing pushups or crunches. Start using light dumbells and doing exercises you find online. Start out slow and work your way up.
